Before I start writing I would like to share what made me write this blog. It is pure love for bindi and the energy it engulfs me with whenever I adorn it. It makes me calm, composed, controlled and super confident. I feel focused, anxiety free.
The love for it increased incredibly when I started to wear saree from last few years. Bindi is one accessory I love to adorn since I was in college. Whenever shopping or getting ready I always look for that perfect size and colour of bindi. I wear it even on short dresses and tubes😬, no other piece of accessory. Penchant for that perfect shade of bindi has made me go out of the way to even color it like a DIY🤭 🙄 I mostly like basic round shape only and the simplest ones, but particular about the color and texture.
I would like to share some research as it fascinates me so much…
The word ‘Bindi’ is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘bindu’ and is associated with a person’s mystical third eye.
The sixth chakra, known as the ajna, meaning “command,” and is believed to be the seat of concealed wisdom (I love this aspect)
The dot between the eyebrows is said to retain energy in the human body and control the various levels of concentration. It is also the central point of the base of creation itself and symbolizes auspiciousness and good fortune (this seems to work for me😊)
Hindu tradition holds that all people have a third inner eye; the two physical eyes are used for seeing the external world, while the third focuses inward toward God.
Traditionally, the red dot is made of cow blood and dirt (this is a shocker)
I loved the quote above. I am not gonna upload pictures of my bindi collection 😆 apparently would like to share one of the striking comments I still remember i.e. “your bindi is like one territory where war can be fought to win over it”😃 and yes how can I forget my tiny tot niece always wanting to ask for the bindi in baby language pointing towards it.
Bollywood celebs and music artists too have showed their attraction and bindi love time and again. I’d like to leave you’ll two of my most favourite numbers on bindi..
..and never ever doubt your own energy- as♒ NO ONE IS YOU AND THAT IS YOUR POWER🌕
